I'm a life-long resident of Burlington, and I've long known the importance education has in the lives of all Halton citizens. I'm currently studying Business Management at Ryerson University, majoring in Entrepreneurship. Education is something I've long been involved in, and I hope to continue that as a Trustee for the HCDSB. (Refer to Website for Additional Information)

I believe that our faith gives us the cornerstone for how we are to live our life and I believe in the value of Catholic Education. (Refer to website to additional information).
I am an active Catholic and this is the foundation of my life. I work as a Civil Engineer on multi-million dollar construction projects, and I am a health and fitness coach as well. I am strong in my faith, financials and with people; leading and educating those around me through example and excellent communication. These are skills I will bring to the HCDSB as a Trustee for Halton Hills, with passion, integrity and transparency.
I am the strong, knowledgeable voice dedicated to serving you full-time as Catholic Trustee. I will continue to listen and respond to your concerns. I will strive for strong Faith development, academic excellence and accountability.
